The Closing Night film this year was unanounced in the schedule and the program guide. This is pretty odd because the sponsors which adorm the little Fantastic Fest backdrops seen in every theater and every video released this year have the logos for Fox and the film itself among AMD and Fosters and Gamecock. And it's a full page ad on the back cover of the program guide. The only reasons I can think of for keeping this film a "secret" are derogatory so I'll just move on.
At least they got Bill Murray! That came as an honest surprise to me. He came out and helped the director with an intro, did a Q&A afterward, and apparently hung out at the closing night party (which I didn't go to for various reasons, but pictured Darren Aronofsky pinned into a corner at Barton Creek Saloon between a wheelchair and an old man, unable to speak to anyone for any longer than a certain webmaster dictated. I'd like to think this wasn't true of Murray, I'll have to ask someone who went).
Murray was about as cool as you'd expect him to be.
The movie... had good sets and costumes.
